their religious part of their message but early on they were one of the strongest anti-catholic voices in america and they went all in in in the end they worked with the nixon campaign against him so i will cover the two basic things i learned as we go through that campaign. i'm going to read a couple of passages some point you to three scenes and we will see how far we get that one has to do with billy graham's work on behalf of nixon and kennedy. the second one is a vignette from kennedy's used in speech where there was this crisis in the campaign greifeld lucky heads is the confronted a group of protestant ministers and went to houston and the last one is set in nashville, tennessee where one of the most prominent clergymen, baxter was an icon in the church of christ preached an anti-catholic sermon and hattie congressman rebutter this armand immediately after was delivered which you can imagine both had front-page stories on monday, just the average is violation of all kinds of southern taboos and rebutting an iconic on his own pulpit was quite extraordinarily so i will probably do that one.

for this amendment will tell america's doctors that we are committed to putting in place reforms that will allow them to do their job. interesting, we're talking about the ama a few moments ago. this is one of the top priorities for the american medical association. and one the reasons, quite frankly that they endorsed the democrat, the underlying bill. not doing this will actually negate any of the benefits to america's doctor that might occur within the bill. one of the other things that is so important to the nation's physicians is any next amendment. >> how many do you have? >> eight. the next would require medicare payments to be 25% what would be standard in the government or state-based programs. for too many, medicaid is -- puts is -- is an empty promise. it puts care on the reach of the citizens. those with medicaid find themselves unable to access services because medicaid pays less than than private ensurers. it pays even less than medicare. patient then realize that coverage does not equal rack sses. medicaid payment short falls cost shift and produce charity care. as worst, they refuse t
